Jaime Rees, a Spokane native, has been chosen to represent Team USA at the world championships in women's pro downhill mountain bike competition in Saalfelden-Leogang, Austria, Aug. 31 – Sept. 2. She has finished 3rd at the US national championships in both 2011 and 2012.

In the elite women's four-cross, the lone competitor for the U.S will be Melissa Buhl (Chandler, Ariz.), who automatically qualified for her start spot by virtue of her dual slalom win at the 2012 USA Cycling Mountain Bike Gravity National Championships. USA Cycling will also send a junior men's squad to Austria to contest the downhill competition. That squad will be led by automatic qualifiers Richard Rude Jr. (Redding, Conn./Yeti Fox Shox Factory Race Team), Kevin Littlefield (Auburn, Wash.), and Austin Hackett Klaube (Dillon, Colo.). They'll be joined by discretionary picks Austin Warren (Alpine, Calif./DRD X-Fusion Intense), Alexander Willie (Longmont, CO/ Intense Cycles), and Cole Picchiattino (Murrieta, Calif.)
